What kind of lights would be best for a patio umbrella-electric, battery, or solar?
I would love to have one of those patio umbrellas with lights running along the inside ribs. Am not enthused about running an electric cord but wonder how long the batteries would last on a battery operated umbrella. Or would an umbrella with solar operated lights be satisfactory.

go electric. solar too dim, batteries don't last. I found a good kit that ties to the ribs.
